6/6 - POST PARIS SUMMIT

The Paris Summit ended with the idea to meet again sometime in late Fall. We'll see if that squares with any moves the U.N. makes towards recognizing a Palestinian state in September.

Or with any of Obama's ideas of his legacy. I personally don't think he intends for Netanyahu to outwit, outlast, or outplay him.

It sounds like one word might fit Paris right now -- chaos.

Starting with flooding:

City of Lights flooded: Paris, Seine River rises to highest level seen since 1982

Paris Flooding Reaches Highest Peak in Decades, Louvre Closes Down to Protect Art

It hasn't just been France that has seen historic flooding.

Floods are happening around the world: USA, Mexico, Russia, China, France, Germany, Belgium, Ukraine, Romania

29 people rescued by helicopter as giant mudslide blocks mountain village near Sochi

Lots of severe weather and storms:

Tropical storm Colin forms in the Gulf of Mexico, Florida to face flooding, dangerous seas

Seventeen million on the East Coast faced severe lightning storms on Sunday as New York's Governors Ball was CANCELLED

Another 51 people struck by lightning in Germany bringing total to over 100 this week in Europe

Michael Snyder is asking, "Why Is The Weather So Crazy All Of A Sudden?"

There have been riots . . . :

in France: Media blackout as France witnesses biggest revolution in 200 years

and in the U.S.: Violent anti-Trump protesters spit, sucker-punch and throw eggs at Americans trying to attend Trump rally in San Jose; Clinton and San Jose mayor who supposrts her candidacy condemn Trump (not the protestors)

And it might be interesting to note that as the Paris Summit was about Israel "giving the land 'back' to the Palestinians, we've seen the anti-Trump protestors at Trump rallies chanting and carrying signs in which they mock Trump's slogan of "Make America Great Again," with "Make America Mexico Again," and they want to start with California.

'Make America Mexico Again’

'Make California Mexico Again'

There were/are some notable terror threats:

Frenchmen arrested with 100 kilo explosives, many detonators, 3 grenade launchers and kalashnikovs… preparing attack on Euro Football in France

ISIS threatens terror attacks in U.S., Europe; calls Ramadan ‘month of conquest and jihad’

Syrian 'refugees' caught plotting massive terror attack in Germany

John McTernan has weighed in with his thoughts on the Summit.

And are we sure there won't be some sort of serious confrontation with Russia before Obama's out of office?:

Obama apologizes for Hiroshima; what message does this send to those nations that would seek to use nuclear weapons against us?
